:: Hilltop Hoods - The Calling Live

This is a welcome release by South Australian hip-hop outfit Hilltop Hoods, as this backgrounds their live performances from The Calling album. They are becoming more recognisable and popular. The footage is sure to gather their fans in a frenzy. The performance at Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre showcases their worth amongst Australia’s elite in their trade. Hilltop Hoods has been an extremely busy unit and this DVD has scenes from the Big Day Out, Homebake, Meredith, and other festivals. There is some commentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and the “Making Of” the album. The commentary is good in telling of thoughts on various issues that have contributed to their rise. They even preview some of the new material for 2006. The DVD comprises lots of worthy content, gained right through the band’s career (over 10 years) and is an admirable and insightful momento of what has happened to date. It is actually more of a documentary as the interviews are weaved into the music. It’s therefore quite refreshing and the concert production is excellent – great mix and camera shots. Check out the skilful Hilltop Hoods experience.

“The Calling” DVD is out now through Obese Records.
